The word “chap” simply refers to meat, and these delicious hotplate cakes frequently contain yak meat. When the weather starts to get colder, these are the perfect snack for travelers to eat on a large steel or iron plate.
In the stunning Hunza Valley, this delectable dish was first served to us two years ago. Chap Shoro, also known as Hunza pie, is a hearty, rustic, and delicious dish with an appealing name and irresistible aroma. Cooked minced meat is stuffed and sealed between two whole wheat flatbreads and cooked in a skillet for this straightforward dish.
The only vegetable ingredients will be onions, pepper, a sweet carrot, or maybe a tiny tomato that is grown locally. The particular dough recipe, feel, and consistency can differ greatly from town to town when using local species of wheat.
In all of Gilgit Baltistan, this dish was always highly recommended by the locals. It was, in my opinion, an excellent illustration of the variety that can be found in Pakistani cuisine.
When traveling from Gilgit to the Hunza Valley, one of the most well-known places to find this dish is just past the breathtakingly beautiful Ataabad Lake on the highway. You can see some fantastic footage from this amazing day of our trip here.
